Valve Lubrication Systems | Dualco Automated Multi-Point
Dualco has released the new D.A.M.™; an automated multiple-point lubrication system designed explicitly for operation and maintenance of oil and gas valves.
Dualco Automatic Grease Lubricator Multi-Point (D.A.M.)
Dualco Automated Multi-Point (D.A.M.™) Lube System automatically greases multiple valves while accurately maintaining lubricant levels, without under or over lubricating. Dualco estimates that the system saves about 33% of the grease when compared to manual lubrication. The Dualco 13000 D.A.M. applies measured amounts of lube evenly across the valve seats, achieving superior coverage, assuring the valves' protection and performance. By using the system, the operator no longer needs to over lubricate its valves, which has become an industry tradition, lowering the cost and demand for grease, reducing waste and indirectly lowering CO2 emissions.The
Lubrication System Benefits
Given that 54% of valve failures are attributed to improper lubrication, the Dualco 13000 D.A.M. is positioned to assist in improved maintenance and operations of oil and gas valves. Downtime from failures should lessen, which increases productivity and profits, and by better maintaining the equipment, the useful life of the valves should increase.
Valve Lube Applications
While the D.A.M. can be used in many other applications, the system is specifically designed to grease ball and plug valves for refineries, offshore platforms, oil and gas pipelines, wellheads, as well as fracturing processes, manifolds, and industrial sites.
